Dem Congressman shocked at betrayal by amnesty provocateurs
It’s broken windows theory, at a very personal level.
If you hang out with people who have zero respect for our laws and who think it is their right to mock us openly and dare us to deport them in accordance with law (knowing full well the political theater that would create), why are you so surprised that they secretly record your meeting and then use it to help their cause even if it embarrasses you?
Really, Democratic Representative Luis Gutierrez from Illinois, why did you think there would be any honor from these people and that they wouldn’t break your window after breaking our immigration windows?
Via Fox Latino, Leading Pro-Immigrant Congressman Severs Ties With DREAMer Groups; Calls Them Manipulative, Racists:
U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, the vocal proponent in Congress for a change in policy that would give undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as minors a chance to legalize their status, has cut off ties with two groups that have coordinated provocative protests in recent months.
Gutierrez, a Democrat from Illinois, on Monday evening issued a press release announcing that he was no longer going to work with the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA) and their affiliated advocates at DREAMActivist.org.
The congressman said the final straw in a series of actions by the groups that he has found unsettling was the secret recording by a NIYA representative of what was to have been a confidential discussion last week between Gutierrez and parents of immigrants who are being held in an immigrant detention center in El Paso, Tex.
“It just shows me how dangerous they are,” Gutierrez said in an interview Tuesday with Fox News Latino….
As to the racism part, you have enabled that too.
Anti-white rhetoric is par for the course among the most ardent open borders agitators.
In fact, playing on race is part of the strategy of demonizing as racists anyone who is for enforcement of race-neutral immigration laws.
The racism charge is one of the reasons the word “illegal” has been banned by most major publications from the discussion.
You ignored those broken windows, so don’t act like you’re just figuring that out now:
Gutierrez said the leader of NIYA, Mohammad Abdollahi, who was born in Iran and raised in Michigan, has expressed racist [anti-white] views on the Internet, and bragged about how hard it would be for the United States to deport a gay person to Iran.
Gutierrez said it bothers him that someone who feels no fear of deportation is organizing people who are subject to immigration enforcement for risky encounters with U.S. border officials.
No matter what the headlines say, amnesty is not dead. There are more windows to be broken.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
Obey American law. Deport those who don’t.
gee, an Iran link. like I said in todays column about iran we need to wipe them out.
OMG leave it to the left to absolutely screw up a prime opportunity to debate about immigration. We are a nation of immigrants and the pull up the ladder rhetoric is tiring. Quotas are hurting us as a country. Bright talented (even hard working) people want to come here, and we thumb our noses at them. Why, so they don’t go on welfare, so we don’t lose jobs to them? These are lame excuses. Keep the criminals out and let everyone that wants to come here, come here. Ohhh and don’t look to the liberals to make any kind of principled stand because they can’t, they don’t operate on any kind of principle.
“We are a nation of immigrants and the pull up the ladder rhetoric is tiring.”
Not as tiring as straw-man bs.
Exactly. America is a nation of immigrants so far as it permits immigration following its establishment. Men and women who were citizens at the time of its founding, later through decree, or through birth, are native Americans. America is overwhelmingly populated by native people.
We are NOT a nation of immigrants. There was NO NATION when we first landed here. We came here as explorers and conquerors. That is what we did. Later we allowed in certaion numbers to help with agrarian issues in farming etc. We have not had any reason for ANY immigration for the last 40 years. We are no longer an agrarian nation. All immigration should be halted for at least 20 years as it was back in the 50-60’s to allow integration into the society. Continued massive immigration to appease the slave business via the chamber of commerce and large ag farms should be stopped.
How long until it can be said of the once great America: “There is no nation there”?
We have a process for legal entry and even a path to citizenship here. That process prevents crime immigration and riff raff that want to cause trouble from entering.
It’s not that hard if you are are willing to work and respect the law. It could be easier but most of what has made it harder is the leaky borders and PC crap.
Our system is being subverted from within by all of these concessions and they are wondering why it doesn’t work any more. And the activists have learned that loud and obnoxious shouting will get your way if you bring drones of voters with you.
Exactly. We should not offer preferential treatment to people who abrogate our laws or demand a selective rule of law. We should not condone people, especially our representatives, who suggest a general amnesty for around 30 million illegal aliens.
That said, we should address the cause of mass migration from Mexico, etc. The issues that need to be resolved exist in those nations. We should question anyone who does not recognize this inconvenient truth. In order to avoid overpopulation problems, we should encourage and cooperate with those nations to fully exploit their resources and people for their common and individual good, and for our mutual benefit and relation.
. “We are a nation of immigrants and the pull up the ladder rhetoric is tiring.”
Really? How far back do you want to go? My ancestors were here when yours were still fighting each other or selling others like you to slavers.
“Keep the criminals out and let everyone that wants to come here, come here.”
News flash, those who violate our laws of sovereignty are criminals. If you think any other nation is as lenient as we are, try sneaking into Mexico and then demand an education for your kids, along with all the benefits of social welfare. You will quickly learn that the horror stories about Mexican jails are, in fact, true.
I suggest you read a very old book, Camp of The Saints.
One of the arguments made for open borders is: What if the Native Americans ha d immigration laws and kept out illegal immigrants? My guess is that there wouldn’t be any Reservations.
The plight of the Native Americans is one of the best arguments for strict enforcement of strict immigration laws.
There wasn’t a monolithic bloc of “native Americans”. There were nations and tribes, some were imperial, some practiced slavery, some were cannibalistic, and others yet were genocidal. They were as much in competition with each other as they were with anyone else. Many were migratory without fixed borders.
I think that would be “most practiced slavery”.
In the original form of young women stolen from other tribes, at least, and forced to grind grain between two rocks in return for a small meal, along with providing sex to men and a punching bag for jealous older women.
It’s baffling that so many people who don’t seem otherwise insane think it’s good for the country to waive laws for foreign nationals who entered our borders in willful violation of our laws and then started demanding that we change our laws to accommodate their wishes.
It isn’t just immigration laws. It’s also laws against forgery, identity theft, driving without a license or insurance, etc. Amnesty proposals have said it’s okay to commit ID theft if you’re a foreign national who entered illegally. If you’re merely a U.S. citizen, tough luck.
What happens if citizens start openly saying, “Yes, we broke some laws, and we DEMAND that the government change the law so it doesn’t matter”?
it speaks volumes about their character.
Most Americans are in favor of LEGAL immigration where people come here for a better life and opportunity. What we are against are illegals who come into the country, go on the dole for “free” food, housing and medical. There are stores/bodagas where one can but a care package filled with goodies and groceries paid for with foodstamps to be sent back to families back home paid for on the backs of taxpayers struggling to pay for their own food, shelter and health needs. I agree we need immigration reform but 1st we need to tear up Sen Kennedy’s 1965 reforms and start over from scratch and amnesty is a nonstarter. Our economy is stalled with employment levels at it’s lowsest since Carter was president. Immigration law should be designed to help our country not millions upon millions who have no aligence to the US but are looking for a free ride.
This guy is surprised that he was betrayed by law-breaking liars?
Ever heard the expression: “there is no honor among thieves”?
I guess now he understands what it means.
Better late than never.
Well, considering who it is and that the backstabbing has not killed his career, maybe better he never figured it out.
He may be upset over the immediate backstabbing, but I doubt he has actually “learned something”. Look for him to continue his push for the reform. It has kept him in office for a while, and we all know that is the underlying mission of every congresscritter.
Here’s an example of an illegal “dreamer” in Florida who really is living the dream. She has 7 kids and has been on the dole for 20 years.
Call Cantor and Goodlatte, two Republican ‘leaders’ in the House who are pushing Amnesty for these Dreamers….
I wonder if Mohammad Abdollahi has been “navigated” into Obamacare and if uses EBT cards and Obamaphones? If so, he’s living the Dream.
Mohammad? From Iran? NIYA leader? Waitasec. What’s that have to do with “Latino”?
They always come for the conspirators first. These are people with a known treacherous disposition. Well, that, and they are ripe for extortion.
Don’t trust this man. Also, I could have told him, if he feels this is happening, that dictators don’t care who you are. If you get in their way; they rid themselves of you even if you are on their side.
